Guggenheim Venice is located on beautiful Grand Canal of Venice. The low white palazzo in the middle is the Peggy Guggenheim Museum.

IMG_1944Venice has been all about Art for us this time. Biennale and also the Peggy Guggenheim. The Guggenheim in Venice is in so much more intimate setting than one in NY.  http://www.guggenheim.org/venice

Shortly after Peggy herself’s Art collection was shown for the first time at the 1948 Venice Biennale,( Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothoko and Arshile Gorky), she purchased the palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal of Venice , where she became to live for the next 30 years. And from 1951, Peggy had opened up her home to the public for every summer to show her personal Art collection.  There are still her dinning table and the chairs there and also her beautiful iron bead head that was made by one of my favorite artist Calder.

IMG_1962This is such a humble entrance compare to her impressive and most exquisite Art collection.  The Cubism, Surrealism to Abstraction Expressionism. Her amazing taste and eyes for colors, lines and the power of paintings, sculptures and her passion to discover and grow the talented artists!  She was in a way “The Pimp ” and ” The Mother” of undiscovered genius Artists in that time. She would find them and encourage them and literally feed and give them places to sleep. So they could work. They could work under her commissions.

Terrace out to Grand Canal. I just can imagine all those big artists like Duchamp, Pollock or Brancusi getting off the Gondolas and taking steps up to the Terrace for her most artistic parties… I see her in this most eccentric outfits with all her intellectual conversations with biggest artists of the history. Ah I so wish I was there….

Peggy, Her Motto was ” Buy 1 painting a day”, What a woman!

Peggy died aged 81 in1979. Her ash is buried in a corner of the garden of Palazzo Venier, then home and now the museum converted by the Guggenheim Foundation after her death.

The museum experience was fulfilling and enlightening. It was absolutely just.. can’t find the word…!
